Day after day of rain, followed by another downpour Monday night, caused flooding in parts of Mansfield and the Clear Fork and Black Fork Rivers to rise Tuesday. Richland County Emergency Management Director Keith Markley was standing on the banks of the Clear Fork in Bellville, keeping an eye on the water level marker, and watching the river rise. He says the water had reached the 10 foot marker, then got to 11 feet, in an hour and a half. He urges Bellville residents to prepare for the river to overflow, especially if more rain falls.  The Clear fork did overflow by afternoon, covering State Route 13 with water.  In Shelby, the fire station was evacuated as the Black Fork rose closer to its banks, and Main Street was closed. Mayor Marilyn John says the water has since receded to the point where Main Street could be re-opened.  Bicentennial and Community Parks in Lexington were covered with water to the point where it covered Lexington-Springmill Road, forcing police to close it and detour traffic. Markley reminds motorists to never drive through high water because you could get standed very easily, and even swept away if the water is flowing hard. The Richland County Sheriff's dive team and Red Cross are on standby to rescue any stranded residents and motorists, and to provide shelter, if necessary.  Another road closed by high water was North Sandusky Street in Bucyrus. The National Weather Service expects another one to three inches of rain Tuesday night, so residents and business owners in flood-prone areas are advised to prepare for more high water.
